Women Eaten by an Octopus

Well…..I was suppose to be a mermaid, growing in on the beaches of Tampa, Florida.

Sometimes She Caused Trouble

Yes, Sometimes I do.  Lately, it looks like I have been into so much I have not been able to post all my endeavors!  I made this copper and silver bracelet recently, took a chance and sent it into Belle Amoire jewelry magazine and before I knew it…….They published it in this months, March 2012 magazine.  I am also featured on the website http://www.stampington.com/bellearmoirejewelry/2012/jwl_sp12.html.

So Enjoy yourself, create, cause trouble….because I do!!

A Heart in my Hand flutters gently

silver-heart-aThis beautiful sterling silver heart was commissioned by a lovely women, Sue Coder, as a very special  Christmas Gift to her sister-in-law.  I heard today, she LOVED it!! my heart flutters gently as I hand   this over to another appreciative person.  Thank you Sue.



Published in Belle Amoire Jewelry Magazine

  I am published in this months Belle Amoire Jewelry magazine 3 Times, separate articles for my metal smithing jewelry!  Rustic Forest Necklaces,page 48-51, The World, page 86 -87 and Forest Tears Earrings page 113.

I am truly  proud and happy to be in this magazine, 3 times.  I had recently taken some metals classes to brush up on my skills, fearing I had gotten sketchy on my designs and my true “nature” came through!  Please go buy the magazine at your local bookstore, or contact me for a signed copy one!!!  You will love reading my journey and inspiration…saving that surprise for the magazine    My day position in life is as an art therapist, psychotherapist in which I see alot of different people’s worlds and watch them journey through their own forest!! Thus:  I noted forest tears.  It is interesting to me that Art Imitates life and Life imitates Art.  My life and others are constantly intertwined….  some of these items will be for sale on my etsy site,,,,others are just to dear to depart with….but I will make more, special orders………
